The University of Oregon African American Workshop and Lecture series connects national experts with UO thought leaders and change agents. It is focused on helping our campus to better understand the most promising practices in this area and utilizing their expertise to institutionalize more effective environments, practices and policies.
While some of the speakers will deliver large campus addresses, many of them will work with smaller groups of our campus community including advisors, deans, student leaders, faculty, staff, vice presidents and supervisors to raise awareness, hone existing practices and, in some instances, develop new skills.
This week features Professor Emmanuel Akyeampong, Oppenheimer Faculty Director of the Harvard University Center for African Studies and Ellen Gurney Professor of History and Professor of African and African American Studies.
